Okay, the title is a little misleading. But seriously, this was a rather genius moment. Every year, my mom sends a crap load of Peeps to my son for Easter. Every time we get these, I let them sit around until summertime when I do a lot of outdoor grilling, after all, Peeps are not the most delicious Easter treat….until you’ve had them toasted on a stick over the grill! It’s like eating a creme brulee on a stick….magical, fluffy, covered with a caramelized sugar crust! Trust me, you have not had a proper toasted marshmallow until you’ve had a toasted Peep. Step it up a level…tonight I had the munchies. I wanted to make something , but quickly. I had all the makings for a Rice Krispie treat. The only thing was, Peeps were the only option for marshmallows! This snack was made in less than 7 minutes! The Peeps were melted and caramelized in the butter when I mixed it together…and the finishing flavor was far superior than when I used regular marshmallows!! The burnt sugar flavor was DELICIOUS. I don’t think I can ever use regular marshmallows again!
Eat it warm, with a a drizzle of chocolate and peanut butter….YUM!
